September 23, 2015 – In conjunction with Chicago Artists Month, Project Onward is proud to partner with Remy Bumppo Theatre Company for their current production, Love and Information, running at the Greenhouse Theatre! Seven Project Onward artists are represented in a stunning exhibition in the theatre lobby. Each of the artists in the exhibition addresses the perils of negotiating interpersonal relationships, the fear of loss, and the limits of communication. These are universal themes, but adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness have an especially complicated relationship to romance and even friendship, where the typical barriers to intimacy and understanding can seem impossible to overcome. But these artists approach their problems head-on, with startling clarity, raw honesty, and even humor.
Check out this handy field guide to the art and artists from Project Onward. If you like what you see, please contribute to Remy Bumppo’s Art Supply Drive for Project Onward!
